Indeed, the rosette looks interesting to say the least. Maybe he painted right on the top? I find it hard to believe he matched the pattern of the topKeith wrote:interesting photos and "modifications" (plastic and rubber on the saddle and whatever in the nut).
to my peepers it appears jose g. has skills beyond mortal man using spruce in his rosette that matches the grain pattern of the top..... or the rosette is a decal. if the latter, well...hopefully the money saved went into good wood. I am intrigued with photos in the first link. it appears the nut has an extension on the head side. not sure about that. his backs appear to be interesting braced--so much so that his label looks to be inside a "picture frame"
He just wanted higher action i suppose. At least that's what he wrote.Keith wrote:yeah, it could be a painted rosette which had to take some doing. it does look nice though. did the seller mention the "add-ons" on the saddle and nut and why he did it?
